Joining our existing network of 14 hearing clinics in the lower mainland is Connect Hearing’s newest Vancouver location, set to open early March, 2013 on West Broadway at Spruce. How better to celebrate our new vibrant Broadway neighbourhood, than a top 10 list of Vancouver’s most amazing sounds? We’ll also include a few sounds of our very own that we think are pretty special too.
1. Vancouver Symphony Orchestra
Currently playing to rave reviews on its tour of the United States, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra sees more than 200,000 attendees annually when it plays at the Orpheum Theatre or Chan Centre. Classical music is wonderful ear candy and the VSO is a jewel for the city.
More than 500,000 people descend on English Bay and False Creek each summer to watch fireworks light up the sky during the annual international competition that takes place over one eye-popping week. The fireworks are set off to music chosen by the competing nations and played on speakers for all to hear.
3. Vancouver Canucks Cheers
The Canucks have sold out 410 consecutive home games and the raucous atmosphere inside Rogers Arena is one of the most riveting sounds of the city. In recent years, the team has been a perennial Stanley Cup contender, making their games even more boisterous.
4. The Gastown Steam Clock
Since 1977, the Gastown Steam Clock has chimed every quarter hour, distracting passersby and attracting tourists to this unique landmark.
5. Warm Hellos From Our Staff
Our staff are simply the best - beginning with a friendly greeting and ending with ongoing customer care and support. Visit our new Broadway clinic and meet them for yourself after March 4, 2013. Better yet, pre-book an appointment online or by calling toll free at 1.800.563.4327(HEAR).
